        • Algebra I and geometry or integrated math I and II
        • Biology

        • English I and English II
        • Students studying Advanced Placement (AP) or International Baccalaureate (IB) courses in biology, American history or American government may take and substitute test scores for end-of-course state exams to avoid double testing.
